MiniArt has recently issued another link in their diorama chain of accessories. This time it’s a modular Brick Wall consisting of three main sections, two half sections (which appear to be blown out) and two corner units which can be assembled into any configuration that you wish. These “walls” are vacu-formed and needs to be cut carefully and then assembled. The length of the walls can be doubled if the backs aren’t going to be seen. The set consists of six full wall pieces and four half end pieces, and two lamp poles. The lamp poles are attached to two white sprues which also contain parts that must be in common with other kits. Some of these items can be used for whatever purposes you can think of. There are lamp hangars, which can be attached to an outside wall, which supports lamps that are also provided as extras. I have seen these on other kits while checking out their web site. Consider it a bonus, I guess. Instructions are included and MiniArt also provides painting and assembly guides on their website. I took some hints from their painting video and the walls came out pretty good (see pictures).
I would definitely recommend this kit to any modeler, beginner or otherwise, who needs brick walls to set off their diorama or vignette. This kit can be mixed or matched to other kits or as a stand alone.
My sincere thanks go out to MRC-Model Rectifier Corp. and MiniArt Ltd for the sample and IPMS/USA for providing me with the opportunity to review this product.
